Follow the bunny-hopping path through PC gaming's history

Omri Petitte of BitMob writes, "Growing up, I plunged myself into the breakneck and keyboard-cracking world of twitch deathmatch shooters. My library consisted of games emblazoned with chest-thumping verbs and wicked synonyms of misfortune: Quake, Doom, Painkiller, Unreal Tournament, Counter-Strike, and so on. My right hand curled into the agile claw shape around my mouse, and my left hovered a callused thumb over the spacebar anticipating a swift swing into the almighty bunny-hop.

"At some point, zipping through a map via speedy jumps transformed into an oddity over a display of skill. What happened? Some say it died completely. Others swear by alternative forms of the same mechanics such as Tribes: Ascend's skiing. The video below, crafted by the folks over at Gather Your Party, posits bunny-hopping should remain an integral component of PC gaming's identity - and judging by the community's often artful use of it, I'm inclined to agree." (Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Natural Selection, PC, Quake, Retro, Team Fortress 2)

Actually this was more about how the Author thinks the art of Bunny Hopping in games has Died.

Well I say go play Tribes Ascend, were Bunny Hopping and Surfing are a Glorious skill to master along with Jet packs.

I really liked the video though, it made me kinda sad for something I've never tried to attempt other than in CS: Source. Keyword, attempt.
